hln CLI

What is hln?​

hln is a command-line interface (CLI) that you can use to create your application from a particular stack.

hln CLI has the ability of searching and downloading stacks from stackhub, creating application from a particular stack, and managing lifecycle of an application.

How does hln work?​

With the help of hln CLI, all you need to do is to choose a stack and specify inputs such as your application name, the kubeconfig of your cluster, etc. Then you can spin up your application with a single command hln up -i.

Under the hood, hln relies on two core concepts, stack and dagger. Stack is the sketch of your application architecture. Dagger is the execution engine of our stack.
